Google logo history
Google (first era)
This logo was used during the developing stage at Stanford University. Google was, in fact, originally named BackRub.
This logo was used only for a month. Back then, the “G” was green.
The “G” is now blue, the logo seems smaller, the shadow is repositioned, and an exclamation point (!) was added, possibly to mimic the Yahoo! logo.
Google (second era)
Launched September 19, 2013, the logo was remade in 2D. Notable differences also include a serifs of less-acute angles on the “G” and a connected horizontal bar on the “e”. The logo is also represented in monochrome on many Google products.
Google logo Fun facts
Google’s original name was BackRub.
There were 3 different logos before the current one.
Google is a play on the word googol, a mathematical term for the number represented by the numeral 1 followed by 100 zeros. The use of the term reflects Google’s mission to organize a seemingly infinite amount of information on the web.
Google often makes special modifications, known as Google Doodles, to its logo, commemorating birthdays of well-known persons such as Leonardo Di Vinci, Albert Einstein, and Edward Munch; holidays such as Christmas, the 4th of July, and Mother’s Day; and specific events such as The Olympics, World Cup etc. Google Doodles were first created by the founders of the company in 1999. The doodles are currently designed by Dennis Hwang who has created over 150 doodles since the year 2000.
